Mindfulness for Health

Earlier this year I was awarded a Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre Training Grant (Wigan Council) to run a Breathworks 8-week Mindfulness for Health Course specifically for Carers with WLCC, in a Leigh venue over September and October. I’m thrilled to be teaching this course that I attended as a participant in 2018, thinking that I would give it a try and doubting it would make a difference to my health. It did make a huge difference to my health and wellbeing! I’m so glad Carers registered with WLCC can do this course for FREE!

Places are limited so follow this link for all the information and booking:

See my Mindfulness page for the great feedback Carers gave about the Mindfulness for Stress Course I taught with WLCC earlier this year.

New Website!

Yes, I’ve finally got around to begin creating a new website. It will be a work in progress for a while and then will feature my work as a Mindfulness Teacher and a Movement & Visual Artist. An advantage of working in natural places is that I have lots of photographs to select and add. Hope you like them!
